Talking about his forthcoming documentary, "McKellen: Playing The Part", the thespian has unleashed his funeral plans. He reveals that he wants his send-off to be quite a ‘celebratory’ memorial to be held in a theatre. 

"It would be free admission and I'd want a lot of beautiful people there. When I finished this plan I thought, 'Ooh, I'd love to go to that funeral', so I hope I might arrange a dress rehearsal before I go," he was quoted as saying.

Fret not, guys as the theatrical maverick is not really sinking into his final years.

"As I see other people getting decrepit and unable to work, I think, 'Well, that may well happen to me!'"

Well, that gives everyone an inspiration that ‘last moments of life can be made joyous for others to remember you with smile in their eyes and happiness in their heart’.
